⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment

🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine

so hard to tell people who you usually advocate for that you're Tired

Hey, #Witches, it's time to stop using #endangered #WhiteSage.

Between white people appropriating like crazy, and CA wildfires killing the plants and their entire ecosystems, it's time this plant ceased being everyone's go-to for magickal work.

"... Due to the illegal over-harvesting of Saliva apiana in recent years in combination with increased, devastating wild fires on White Sage lands in Southern California, concern for the commercialized harvesting and distribution of White Sage grows as the wild populations of this species shrink in size.

Many Native American communities are requesting at this time that non-native peoples stop harvesting this plant from the wild altogether. As Native Americans have been the caretakers of this plant and the lands it grows on for countless generations, it is important that everyone respect and honor their request."

your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves

Fighting for justice, but not for all justice, is really just "fine-tuning the injustice".

Simulation training was pushed back to 5pm... but this means I can skip something I'd been dreading. Hmm.

Aid request for a low income disabled trans person in need! My partner was houseless for a long time prior to moving in with me & lost their clothing & has not been able to get new clothes including any gender affirming clothing in 3+ years. They’re also in need of prescription eyeglasses & have been w/o for 4yrs. I’m trying to raise funds to take them thrifting & to the optometrist for Christmas. Anything is helpful!

Tonight's rabbit hole was *going* to be intraoperative nausea in Caesarean sections, but I just discovered an assignment that seemingly everyone forgot about

UK politics, academics 

Keep having to remind myself that "making a difference" and being good at my vocation isn't a binary thing, and I'm still learning

hi everyone, if you are new to mastodon, please go to your settings, then the "other" category, then turn off search engine indexing. it's a safety feature that makes it a little bit harder for strangers to find your posts.

‪I’m looking for a good time management app (web or desktop) that’ll let me put in the things I need to do, deadlines, and fixed shifts, and have it suggest/plan when/how I should spent my time to get things done.‬

‪Does anyone have any suggestions?‬

Why do my emails sound more and more like clinic letters
